African-American nipple history

ican-American nipple history Well... it's been two weeks since getting my nipples stretched I must say-- it's fabulous. Let me relate my own personal history of body modification and it would put things into perspective.. I'm a 32 year old professional black male who has actually never felt that great about my body.... I'm 5'8, 180, and in good shape but i've always had issues with the way I look. I will say however, that modifying my body has given me a new sense of confidence. I wanted to submit something here because it's rare to hear from African Americans ... read more

ABOUT BRANDING

I'd like to share my views and experience regarding branding. I've been involved in this form of BodyArt for the past three years and have performed over thirty brands totaling over two hundred strikes. Training as a piercer gave me a solid grasp of sterile technique and thousands of piercings taught me how to calm apprehensive clients. A little more research into burn first aid firmed up my aftercare approach. Anybody seriously considering piercing, tattooing, cutting or branding another humans flesh, in the name of art, should be prepared to study and practice. I'd like to thank Raelyn Gallina, Lance ... read more

My First Mhendi

First Mhendi My First Mhendi So I am now typing with my left hand delightfully decorated a yummy shade of sienna. It looks so pretty I just keep staring at it... it's almost hypnotic! I had gone to 3 Indian stores Thursday but wanted to go to the one a couple of minutes away from my home... so did that this morning. I found the most gentle woman working there... one who took over an hour showing me around the small store, describing the different foods and such... and then, sharing her knowledge of mhendi with me. Her daughter, who ... read more

Nipple piercing by Raelyn Gallina

ple piercing by Raelyn Gallina Newsgroups: rec.arts.bodyart Subject: I got my nipple pierced last Sunday! Date: 24 Nov 1996 04:44:00 GMT Hello from a long time lurker, As the subject line mentions, I got my nipple pierced! Thanks to all of you who have posted information on the subject, especially those who joined the barbell/ring debate. I decided to go with a straight barbell (12 ga, sss, 3/4" long.) My nipple, pre-pierce and "at rest" measured 5/16" and I appreciated the extra room the first few days post pierce because my nip was running at about 11/16" and semi-erect. Today, ... read more

Helix Pierce Experience

ix Pierce Experience Helix Pierce Experience Ever since having my first ever piercing about a month ago (my tongue), I've been thinking what to get done next. I've heard tons of horror stories about the guy who did my tongue since having it so I decided not to go there again (Renegades in Dundee, Scotland). I'd been told that there was a really experienced piercer elsewhere in Dundee so I thought I'd check it out. The shop is basically a tattoo shop (as most are in Britain) called Graeme's Tattoo Studio. I'd been there once before to get a tattoo, ... read more

Piercing, politics, and plans.

rcing, politics, and plans. Piercing, politics, and plans. My first piercing was done after three days of thought. I was working away from home with two piercing devotees, and one of them offered to do my nipple for me - something I had always wondered about having. As someone who has the pain threshold of a small child, and a fear of needles that borders on the paranoid, body piercing would have been the last thing anyone would have expected me to go for. As it was, the deed was done. I sat, shirt off, while he marked up my ... read more

Keloid excision experience

oid excision experience Keloid excision experience Hi everybody... In keeping up with my tradition of just talking about my nasty keloids, I just wanted to let everybody know that I had the excised yesterday at my plastic surgeon. For those who need a little refreshing, or who are relatively new to r.a.b. (welcome!), I had developed a large keloid on my earlobe from a gun piercing when I was 14. A few years later, it had developed into a full-on keloid (the piercing never really healed), with the keloid on the front really red and itchy, with the keloid on ... read more

Nipple Piercing Experience

cing Experience Date: Thu, 26 Sep 1996 15:52:31 -0400 From: M. Nipple Piercing Experience Some years back, I was interested in sun dancing. This is a native American Indian rite which involves men piercing their breasts, attaching a tether to the object throught the piercing and leaning back against the tether which was attached to a pole. The men would enter into a meditative state rythmically dancing to drum beating. This would last for a few days until the piercings would tear through. When I read of this I decided to pierce myself in honor of this rite and pierced ... read more

Falling into the Abyss ...

ling into the Abyss ... Friedrich Nietzsche wrote "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster; and when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you". Like most quotations, this can mean many things to many people. To me it sums up my journey into piercing in a neat little package. Bear with me for this lengthy ramble and you'll find out why. In so many personal accounts of piercing I've read words to the effect of "I was always drawn towards piercing". It's become almost a ... read more
